Students will learn how to detect and read facial micro-expressions, small contractions of the facial muscles that last only tenths of a second, but give a window into what someone is feeling.
Ever talk with someone & get the feeling that there's something more they want to say? Maybe they said they were happy, but you noticed a tint of sadness. Or maybe they said were mad, and you noticed a hint of happiness.
In this course they'll use imaging software, the same kind used for training detectives and members of secret services, to do a pretest of your people-reading abilities. 2.5 hours later, your post-test scores will show you how much you've learned. Are you a natural at reading expressions? In this course you'll find out.
By learning how to notice and read facial & body micro-expressions, you'll become more compassionate, aware & intuitive. You will notice the beauty of mixed emotions and feel a big boost in your ability to cut through the clutter to figure out what truly matters to your conversation partner.
This lab is based on Dr. LeeAnn Renninger's research on memory and the 5 senses, Paul Ekman's research on facial expressions, Karl Grammer's research on movement cues. There is a follow-up course available for advanced learners.
LeeAnn's interested in all kinds of things, from noticing patterns in the way New Yorkers part their hair, to the evolving shape of car headlights to look like facial expressions. She has a PhD in Social Psychology/Urban Ethology from the University of Vienna, Austria, and a research specialization in interpersonal relations, particularly related to the perception of success: in relationships, in making good decisions, at work, and at play. LeeAnn has led 5-senses, curriculum development, and micro-expression training courses across 4 countries since 1998.
